Audiologists are professionals who work with people that exhibit hearing, balance, and related communication problems. They evaluate individuals of all ages and identify those with the symptoms of hearing loss and other auditory, balance, and related neural problems. They then assess the nature and extent of the problems and help the individuals manage them. Using clinical skills and technology, audiologists measure the loudness at which a person begins to hear sounds, the ability to distinguish between sounds, and the impact of hearing loss or balance problems on an individual’s communication ability that impacts their daily life. Audiologists interpret these results and may coordinate them with medical, speech-language, educational, and psychological information to make a diagnosis and determine a course of treatment. Audiologists must effectively communicate diagnostic test results, interpretation, and proposed treatment in a manner easily understood by patients/clients and their families/caregivers as well as other professionals.
